Magdalen Islands


by microbe

"Historic Islands"

The Magdalen Islands (Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine) consists of eight main islands which form a small archipelago in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, off the coast of Quebec, and New Brunswick. There are quite a few archaeological sites that have been discovered on the island as the Mi'kmaq people used the islands in their seasonal migrations. Jacques Cartier was the first European to discover the island in the 16th century, and today many of the inhabitants are descendants of people who had been shipwrecked on the islands. Today, the islands are a popular destination for tourists and day-trippers, who come to enjoy the beautiful beaches, bike, windsurf, kayak and other ocean activities, as well as to see newborn seals in the winter.
